Got mine from the camper shop, the service was excellent, can't praise them enough! Not to mention that the adhesive etc comes as part of the kit from the campershop

I bought a Reimo Multi rail from fish brain took 3 working days to get to me and the instructions came in German so I had to come on to the T4 forum to get a English translation. but it was easy to fit! the only problem i had was this weekend at Camper Jam as I was taking the Awning down the back finishing cap came off! but i found it on the floor so will glue it back on. works really good, i need to buy another now for the drivers side so i can get roof bars un less there is a better way of doing it?

Lol, my endy piece fell off too. Chris (Big Bad Bear) told me it would happen as did desp dan. I just drilled and countersunk then use the black screw left over and used loads of the black mastic supplied.

Chris also said seal the ends with mastic where the end trims join, his leaks there too!

Hi there,

I went to Glossop Cavarns and got a J rail, cost me £ 10 for 2 meter strip.

Brought a Rivet gun and rivets for £ 5, some trade silicone.

Took me about 15 mins to drill 7 small holes and rivet the rail to the van, sealed it and cleaned it up, now looks really good, as if it was a part of the Van.

All for £ 19.

Been outin the Van and had the Awning attached to it loads of times, A perfect job, no movement.

PROPER JOB.
